It is our hope to provide a Christ centered ministry that will help children to connect to God and help them grow in their spiritual development. We will provide them with a safe environment where they will come to know that God is real and that learning about him can be fun through age appropriate level teaching. To this end, our vision is to provide an atmosphere where they are respected, nurtured and encouraged to develop a knowledge and understanding and most importantly a relationship with Jesus Christ. We want them to come to recognize and develop their gifts and talents and to grow into confident, caring individuals who will share Christ’s love with others through word, praise and service.
Children’s church is held during the 10:00 service and begins at 9:45. The Children’s church is not a babysitting service but a ministry that offers parents of younger children the opportunity to have their children to come together in a supportive, safe environment to learn about God, using age appropriate materials developed for them.
Support and Serve With Us
In the book of Genesis, we see God’s creative imagination unfold in the creation story. He has given each of us an imagination and creative ability that sometimes goes untapped. To put a fun spin on a needed support, we are asking for participants to put their creativity to the test and help us in our Creative Container Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to select a container of any type and to decorate and transform it into a new creation that will be used to collect spare change and even dollars as a seed planting activity sponsored by Servants of Christ Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry.
The first Challenge began May 25, 2014 and continued through September 14, 2014. Over the summer months, members, family and friends participated in this effort. We invited everyone to come to service on the 14th to return their containers or return them to the members that reached out to them. The containers were dedicated during service and displayed after service so everyone has an opportunity to see them before they were emptied. Because this is a seed planting activity, we also encouraged and continue to encourage those who could not decorate a container to participate in the collection of spare change. Examples of containers that were used include, plastic bottles, mason jars, shoe boxes, etc.
The 2015 Challenge will be revealed soon!
We are pursuing outreach opportunities that will allow the children to be of service in ways such as visiting nursing homes, spending time with our elderly members, and missions and service projects.
